Fantastic Football Poems


by John Foster and Korky Paul

As fantastic a book as its title suggests! A picture book of poems with huge appeal across the age range. A terrific selection of poems by such writers as Paul Cookson, Brian Moses, Trevor Millum and Celia Warren, chosen by John Foster, and illustrated throughout in Korky Paul’s vibrant, exuberant, inimitable style! From Rowena Sommerville’s pleading ‘Oh please let me be in your team’ to Peter Dixon’s ‘The World’s First Goal’ (apparently scored by Stone Age Joe!), this is a humorous and affectionate collection about our fascination with football! Great for reading aloud to and sharing with younger children and perfect for football-mad older children to dip into.
